I wouldn't hate a Briles hire. I don't know much about Cristobal, but seems to be a solid coach. I'd definitely kick the tires on Sark. I think he is itching to redeem himself. Time under Pete and Nick is a huge plus.

I will say this. The fact that CDC still has said nothing regarding Herman tells you what he thinks of Herman. Idk if this relationship ends this year or next year but it will end
I think sometime in the next couple of weeks we will all witness a cdc/Herman defining moment of mutual adoration in some form. Now I’m not saying it will be as forward as the Dodds/Brown hug on the sidelines after that Tech win but it’ll be maybe holding hands or something.

I’d go with Briles in a heart beat at this point. He has a damn eye for talent obviously and he’d sure as hell be able to help Texas procure his replacement when it’s time

Sark and art Briles are two different stories. Sark had a drinking problem, and got treatment. Briles was involved in covering up, paying off and in some cases threatening sexual assault victims of football players. Not exactly in the same category. And he’s 65 years old. I’m not sure you take the heat that hire would get for a 3-4 year fix.
This is just flat out wrong. You can rag on his defense, age, etc., but your other statements are just flat out wrong. Please acknowledge your mistake.

The letter is dated May 23, 2017, months after Briles reached a settlement with the school, and dropped his libel lawsuit against Baylor. The letter is signed by Baylor’s general counsel, Christopher W. Holmes, and addressed directly to “Coach Briles.”

It reads: “As you speak with others regarding these issues, you can be assured you may make certain statements without fear of contradiction from Baylor based on the information currently known to us.


“In particular, at this time we are unaware of any situation where you personally had contact with anyone who directly reported to you being the victim of sexual assault or that you directly discouraged the victim of an alleged sexual assault from reporting to law enforcement or University officials. Nor are we aware of any situation where you played a student athlete who had been found responsible for sexual assault.

“We wish you the very best in your future endeavors.”

Like kicking your ass in the mid teens? We finally leveled the playing field, then your President Boren led the way in pulling the rug out from under us. The way you guys skate everything ALMOST makes me want to give up and jump on the Sooner Schooner.

You hit the nail on the head about the fanbase needing to be patient. Not sure where Texas ranks in the whiny "I want it now!" department, but I bet it's high.
I dont think 11 year wait for Texas to be 2000's Texas team is the "I want it now!" I mean each hire is wait 3 years and we will get back to where we need to be. And each time the fans hear that and the team is still are middle of the road it make the fans less patient. To be honest I think we as fans got spoiled. I remember bitching about Chris Simms saying he sucked. Yet losing 1 or 2 games a year with him as QB was not as bad as we thought. But this is Texas and the bar was set at a certain level. So the fact we lose to TCU, WV, and MFing Kansas. That puts an impatient and sour taste it the fans mouth that can only be fixed by winning. The other BS that has gone on with the "EYES" and other nonsense has not help either. But you have to win and win consistently. And the fact is it has not happened and fans are fed up. Till winning starts to happens fans will be unhappy plain and simple.

As I’ve said doesn’t matter if he was directly involved or not. His staff mishandled it and at the end of the day when tour the head of a multi million dollar organization your responsible from the behavior of your staff.

He is responsible for behavior of his staff. But that is a long way from threatening young ladies. You counseled another poster on this thread to "go read...." I direct you to read your own post:

Briles was involved in covering up, paying off and in some cases threatening sexual assault victims of football players.

Now you've changed your tune to "It doesn't matter if he was directly involved or not." There is no evidence, NONE, that he paid anyone, talked to any victim, or threatened any victim. Admit you were wrong or your just another blowhard with a computer.

You can say what you want about Art Briles, but the truth is:

He is a bonafide living legend amongst Texas HS football coaches. I've never met any of them that had something negative to say about him and at one time he was president of the THSCA.

When Texas HS coaches love you, Texas recruits love you. If he could turn Baylor into a team competing for a CFP spot, think about what he would accomplish at Texas.

How about we just get our swimming coach and volleyball coach to be our future coaches. Their programs are on top and they know how to win. They couldn't do any worse than Herman.
Since the year 2000:
  • Longhorns Men's Swimming and Diving NCAA Championships: 2000, 2001, 2002, 2010, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018
  • Women's Volleyball Big 12 championships: 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020
I'm not sure we're really a FB school anymore. How can the FB fanbase be characterized as "whiny" when you compare the results above with the FB record over the same period?

Oregon’s AD just announced that the athletic department is facing an 85 million dollar deficit for this year. If CDC wants Mario Christobol he could probably be had

Ho hum

In the last 2 weeks OR lost to ORS. Even with a lead and terrible officiating they couldn't get it done. And losing to ORS is the Pac XII equivalent to losing to KS. They also lost to CA. I take back what I said.
No.

I don’t really put mich stock in that. Look like it or not this is a strange season, especially for pac 12 and big 10 teams who aren’t going to play and then all the sudden we’re slapped in to a 5 game schedule. Some teams just aren’t going to respond well. Especially teams replacing key players and coordinators.

I mean many teams are playing outside of what you’d expect from them. Not sure it’s a coincidence.

A few names to consider
1. Billy Napier HC ULL- young, energetic, aggressive and innovative
2.Luke Fickell HC Cincinnati- Top recruiter and developer of talent
3. Dave Clawson HC Wake Forest- 4 bowi games in 6 seasons
4.Tom Allen HC Indiana- Has IU in the mix for BIG title
5.P.J. Fleck HC Minnesota- Appears ready for the big time and Texas IS the big time.

That's bad. I don't think Texas is doing well either.

How do people get paid for being this dumb?

Herman at 15? Ed O at 3??????????

Fickell and Allen in the 40s???? Gundy in the 30s??? Chadwell nowhere to be found?

Herman is 15 and Patterson is 20. How many times does 1 coach have to humiliate another to get ranked above them.

65% of the coaches on that lost couldn't accomplish what KEN NIUMATALOLO has at Navy.

Thoughts on giving Yurcich a shot to man the ship with an incentive laden contract and keep Ash as DC? I would be curious to see what he does with the offense when Herman isn't meddling in it. Could be a good stop gap and you you might catch lightning in a bottle, but at the same time don't get sucked into a long contract. He seems to be a good recruiter (Ewers liked him) and has coached under Gundy and Ryan Day. Spend some money on top assistants/recruiters and see what happens. If it doesn't work out then hopefully a better candidate comes along in a year or two.

1)Brown 1998-2013 2)Strong: 14-16 3)Herman: 17-20 (your idea) 4)Yurcich: 2021 or 2021-2022 5)Next HC: starting 2022 or 2023. Potentially 5 different Head Coaches in under 10 years... i don't like how that looks or sounds.

I'm no Herman fan, but JFC, do we really need yet another scheme change. We really don't know what Ash and Yurcich can do unencumbered.

Art Briles all day would dominate at Texas and probably not a lot of money first couple of years .
